Mentorship Challenges has always been exciting for ISBR students and they really look forward to each challenge as a medium to show case their hidden talent as well as to hone their skills. It has been ISBR’s endeavour to nurture learning and consistent development among its students. In adopting this culture, the institute has introduced a SELF DEVELOPMENT PLAN or rather SELF ANALYSIS also known as C2C ( Campus To Corporate- Gap Analysis), which is a series of learning tools and activities that enhances your awareness of various industry practices, reality checks, job profiles, skill- sets required etc. to make its students industry ready.
ISBR had immense pleasure in conducting Mentorship Challenge: Campus to Corporate – Gap Analysis on 15 May 2017. There were 20 contestants from across 7 Mentorship Groups. Mr. Rahul Saha from MBA and Ms. Tanya Sarkar from PGDM hosted the event. The eminent panel of judges included Professor Nanaiah, Director- Corporate Interaction, Dr. C Manohar Dean- ISBR, Mr. G R Nair, Director Admission, Mr. Abbas, Head- Placement and Dr. Karpagam, Director- Academics.
All the mentorship group members were assembled in the auditorium to witness the event and to boost the morale of their team members who were to present on stage. The main objective of this challenge was to prepare each student for corporate world by guiding them to choose their specialization according to their skill set to further zeroing down on their preferred sectors, companies and their job profiles by reinforcing their personal strength and domain knowledge.
In C2C challenge the selected students had to give a brief description about their specialization they are going to take and the sector where they want to work. They had to justify as to why they are opting for a specific sector, what they will gain from it and what job roles they should go for. This led to the clear understanding that how we should plan our career and according to our interests what sector we should choose. The time allotted for each student to present their presentation was 5 minutes. All the twenty contestants performed well and some performed exceedingly well. They even answered questions asked by judges confidently. Out of the twenty contestants, five were declared as the best presentation.
First prize was awarded to Ms. Niyoosha whereas the second prize and third prize were awarded to Mr. Rahul Pandey and Mr. Samir Hassan Ali respectively. The other two consolation prizes were awarded to Ms. Poulami and Ms. Shwetha Chowbey. After the prize distribution ceremony, Dr. C Manohar and Prof. Nanaiah discussed the significance of Campus to Corporate challenge.
Finally, in his vote of thanks Mr. Anni Arnav, Head- HR thanked all the contestants, volunteers, mentors and judges.
Some valuable inputs that we gained from this event were:
- Be clear about what specialization you should go for.
- Identify yourself as an individual and know your strengths and USP.
- According to your interests and capabilities choose the sector where u can be an asset to a company.
